How Location Awareness Improves Productivity

Ontarget SEE IT IN ACTION

Construction sites are complicated, and communication is challenging. When your responsibility is to oversee hundreds of workers, it’s hard to know that the right work is being done at the right time. That’s where location awareness comes in.

See schedule inconsistencies in seconds, spot trades working in unassigned locations. and know exactly where working hours are being spent. No need to do a walkthrough. Just open your computer, smartphone, or tablet and see the whole site in real-time.

Understanding the location of our crews, assets, and equipment is the key to improving our productivity and safety. Time spent in zones enables us to benchmark performance, and provide a faster response to potential delays and cost overrun.

  • Productive (where crews have scheduled activities)

  • Transit (where the material is stored/movement between zones)

  • Unproductive (where there are no scheduled activities)

UNDERSTANDING THE LOCATION OF OUR CREWS, ASSETS, AND EQUIPMENT IS THE KEY TO IMPROVING OUR PRODUCTIVITY AND SAFETY. TIME SPENT IN ZONES ENABLES US TO BENCHMARK PERFORMANCE, AND PROVIDE A FASTER RESPONSE TO POTENTIAL DELAYS AND COST OVERRUN.

  • Productive (where crews have scheduled activities)

  • Transit (where the material is stored/movement between zones)

  • Unproductive (where there are no scheduled activities)

SEE IT IN ACTION

  • You see that 40% of the day is being spent where the material is stored in the transit area. Now you know the material should be moved to maximize employee’s time.

  • You notice an employee scheduled on a critical path item has been in an unproductive zone all day. They were told to work on a less urgent item. You address the miscommunication and get them back to the critical path within the hour.

  • Hidden problems are now clear. Your walk-throughs can target issues directly- no time wasted figuring them out.

ARE YOUR TRADES WORKING WHERE THEY NEED TO BE?
  • Tasks are pulled from the schedule and assigned to the zones.

  • If a company is in a zone not allocated to them, they show up in RED.

  • Easy to see, easy to fix.

SEE IT IN ACTION:
  • Pull data-backed reports with one click

  • Course-correct early in the day

  • Notice problems before they become problems.
